So if you have already bought the phone, or plan to here are a few tips and tricks you might try your hands on.
1. Auto Drop Detection
In case you are clumsy and your phone often keeps dropping, this is the feature specially made for you. When the front camera is out and you drop this phone, it automatically detects that it’s falling and the camera goes inside before it hits the ground. Though it sounds like a cool feature, stay away from experimenting it.
2. Adjusting Resolution and Refresh Rate
When it comes to giving a refresh rate on display, OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the few phones to do so. But once you start using the phone you will realise that one can only notice it when you are scrolling the screen.
But everything has a price to pay and if you want high smoothness, the price is your battery which drains out really fast. So when you are away from your charger make sure you reduce the resolution and save down on the battery.
How to do it? Go on Settings > Display.
3. Screen Recording
Well, this is one of the coolest features and you are going to love this. You know screenshots, but this phone has an in-built screen recording feature. But with Zen Mode, you will have to need to add this option on the quick settings panel.
Once the needful is done, tap the screen recording button and check the recording controls. Here’s how it function.
To record- Tap on the red button
Gear Icon- To make changes in the settings
X button – Close screen recorder
4. Changing Fingerprint Sensor/ Animation Effect
Oneplus has an animation to help with your finger placement, which can be changed by simply going to the settings.
Settings > Security & lock screen > Fingerprint > Fingerprint animation effect.
These are the three options available. However, in case you want to get rid of the animation you can just disable it.
5. Zen Mode
Ever wondered what would be life like if you couldn’t control your phone for 20 minutes? For those literally, survive on their phone, Zen Mode is a feature to try. One Plus has taken some aggressive steps and just locks you out of it for good 20 minutes.
Though don’t freak out, the phone lets you make important phone calls, you can receive calls as well. One can access the camera but you are still locked out. FYI, even restarting your phone will not let you get out of this mode until 20 minutes are up.
How to add it? Add the mode to your quick setting panel. Click on the pencil icon and drag the ZEN MODE icon. Once you confirm entering that mode, there is no coming back from it, until the timer gets over.
